Decorative and functional, hot stamping transfer foils are available in a wide variety of patterns; including marble and wood-grain patterns. They also come in bold solid colors, bright metallics, including red, gold and silver and even trendy holographic. Better yet, you can opt for hot stamping to be in gloss, satin or a matte finish, so you can design foils that match not just your company’s logo but your colors. Hot stamp foils can be used to enhance and decorate products in a broad range of industries and in numerous printing applications, including picture frames, envelopes, packaging products, plastic products, promotional items and more – the list is limited only by your imagination!

Hot stamping also works well for anti-counterfeiting purposes. Because the hot stamping process involves a series of extremely thin layers that are hot pressed together, any attempt to separate those layers is very noticeable, making it easy to identify when a label or product has been tampered with. This is why so many checks, credit cards and other sensitive documents have holographic foil images applied.
